Carisa Janes, who is truing out to be one of the best and brightest in the makeup biz, recently launched a groundbreaking collection of finishing powders within her makeup line Hourglass. The new Ambient Lighting Powders use “photoluminescent technology” to emulate the appearance of young, healthy-looking skin. And, as always, Hourglass delivers.
Back in November, Quest attended Hourglass’s Spring 2013 presentation where makeup artist James Kaliardos demonstrated how the Ambient Lighting Powders capture, diffuse and soften the way light is reflected on the skin. Rather than cake and cover up, the powders work by altering the perceived appearance of the complexion by filtering out harsh light. “I learned early on how different types of light can truly flatter the complexion,” say Founder and CEO Janes. “Growing up my other had pink light bulbs in all of the lamps throughout the house because it was the softest and most flattering, and she always wanted to look good.”
Hourglass, which was founded in 2004, was one of the earliest pioneers of fusing skincare technology with high-quality makeup. Winner of both an Allure Best of Beauty award and an Oprah Magazine makeup award, Hourglass continues to impress.
Ambient Lighting Powder is free of parabens, talc, fragrance, nano-particles, and gluten. There are 6 unique lighting powders, and each is suitable for all skin tones. Choose your powder according to your most flattering light.
